International Women's Day

Celebrating women of the world past, present and forging the path for an equal future

13193

This year marks the 100th anniversary of International Women’s Day where women come together to celebrate social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women across the world. It is important that we recognise that this day also focuses on raising awareness for equality for all.

Kingfisher Lighting is a champion of equality, proven by the excellent team of women in all areas of the business including finance, sales and transport. Progression through the company is further evidence of this including Distribution Sales and Deputy Managers, Product, Projects, Marketing, and Procurement Managers; all positions held by women.

We are also recognising some significant members of lighting industry, past and present who have changed lighting as we know it;

Leslie Wheel is known for her skill and creativity in bringing warmth to areas within lighting design. She has received many awards for her work such as an IALD Award of Excellence for the Willard Hotel in Washington, D.C., the Designer's Lighting Forum (NY) Honor Award, and many more…

Naomi Miller is a Senior Lighting Research Scientist. She is recognised within the industry for her many lighting design awards and service to the industry. She focuses on the quality of lighting, health impacts of lighting and the efficiency and sustainability of lighting. Her research has helped the industry improve methods and she now sits as an important member of the International Association of Lighting Designers and IES.

Sally Storey is recognised as an excellent lighting designer and recently won a LIT Lifetime Achievement award for her contributions to the industry. Her work exceeds the boundaries of technology and design by creating unforgettable schemes. She has also written three books to help people expand their industry knowledge.
